Would you eat food with this health warning: "May cause heart disease, depression, Alzheimer's, cancer or gastrointestinal disorders"?

Why would you eat food with this health warning: "May cause heart disease, depression, Alzheimer's, cancer or gastrointestinal disorders"? If you've ever felt cheated that big corporations are allowed to play havoc with your health while their executives - and our politicians - make millions every year and spend long summer holidays on Caribbean beaches... You're going to have a new enemy from today...
If you thought the government and international institutions like the FDA are set up to protect you and your loved ones, you're about to be stunned...
That's because, government and the FDA, are ignoring the greatest threat to your health when it comes to what they require on food labeling. If they weren't making deals with wealthy corporations, they'd insist on the following warning on cereal boxes, loaves of bread and many more common products: "May cause heart disease, depression, Alzheimer’s, cancer or gastrointestinal disorders"
This poison ends up in many of the foods we eat...
It's called glyphosate. It's a "killer" ingredient in one of the most popular herbicides on the market. And, it kills more than just weeds!
Your neighbours spray it on their lawns and in their gardens. It’s used in parks, golf courses and other public areas. And, of course, farmers spray millions of acres with glyphosate. After all, it is a very effective weed killer.
Just one problem. One huge and very serious problem…
Because of its pervasive nature, traces of glyphosate end up in our food. And if you eat foods that include soy, sugar, corn, wheat, or canola, you’re essentially eating this posion.
A new study from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology shows us why exposure to glyphosate is so devastating...
Glyphosate inhibits an enzyme in our body that helps us detox. When glyphosate undoes the action of this enzyme, food chemicals and environmental toxins become more active in our bodies. And the damage takes a terrible toll on our health.
Brace yourself. Here’s a quote from the study… “Negative impact on the body is insidious and manifests slowly over time as inflammation damages cellular systems throughout the body.”
Researchers believe glyphosate plays a role in gastrointestinal disorders, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, depression, autism, infertility, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
And every one of us could be exposed to traces of glyphosate every day.
Now, consider this: The registration holder for the brandname product containing glyphosate is the biggest GMO monololy company in the world! GMO stands for genetically modified organism. Already over 80% of our corn in South Africa is genetically modified. And, despite a recent shake-up in food labeling laws in South Africa, it is not a requirement for companies to disclose to you and me on their packaging whether genetically modified ingrdeients are used in their products. So, whether you like it or not, you're being served poison with your food every day - and you're paying giant corporations for it!
Say no to GMO - look for organic produce and eat natural whole fresh foods while avoiding packaged foods. Stand up for your right to healthy living!

Sally's comment …. I think this is Round-up they are talking about and Monsanto is probably the company!
